Just Right for MARS OPS!
Review by Samuel
Just right for MARS Operations-never heard a week station use one of these! Instant band switching in most instances with auto tuner!
Works Remarkably Well
Review by Greg
After a direct lightning strike that wiped out my shack I bought this antenna for use with the ICOM IC-7300 HF Transceiver.

The AH710 comes with 100 ft. coax which barely made it to my shack, as I mounted it (more like hung it lol) about 30 feet up a hill in three trees in my backyard.

Even though it was hung in a shoddy manner I get really good results with this folded dipole. I can reliably propagate from West Virginia to Seattle, Portland & California, even British Vancouver - many contacts in GA, AL, TX, and CO. - I have a high ridge so my contacts eastward are more selective in MA, NY, PA, and FL at 100 watts.

I ordered some Mastrant (Nylon cord) and some pulleys to hang it from 3 points. (ends & middle) - The rope that comes with it will probably not be enough length and seems less than desirable in comparison to the higher quality weather & seasonal resistant mastrant.

My HF rig 180 mtrs-6 mtrs does very well using an MFJ autotuner which seems more efficient than the built-in tuner on the transceiver.

The RG8 COAX included (100ft.) is a bit on the 'cheap' side, but I felt okay since it came from ICOM.
Don't forget the dielectric gel and moldable weatherproofing tape.

Length approx. 80 feet.
Fairly heavy in the box.
4 Stars. I'm happy with it!
1 star deducted for the cheap coax. lol.
